Brownback Says Kansas Could Consider Religious Liberties Bill

Governor Sam Brownback says his administration could pursue new religious liberties legislation in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage. A Kansas bill on that topic attracted national attention in 2014 and eventually stalled in the Legislature.
Brownback is also defending the state’s refusal so far to recognize same-sex marriages when it comes to state services. He says the changes needed are still under consideration.
“You have to understand and get the mechanisms in place. That’s what we’ve been studying, having meetings with the attorney general, with the relevant cabinet agencies,” says Brownback.
Brownback says they don't want to rush the issue.

“We just want to make sure we do this right and appropriate, and it’s not as if there haven’t been a lot of things going on, too. We’ve had a number of things happening here,” says Brownback.
Advocates for LGBT causes have criticized the governor’s administration for not making changes in state services more quickly.
